Summary: The Asus G75VW-NS71 was thought as a means of offering gamers an outlet for their passion. This laptop does its job well and it does not have much to make it unlovable. It behaved well when we tested it, so we recommend it wholeheartedly.
Summary: Ready for the Finale. Asus is one of the first manufacturers presenting a gaming laptop with Ivy Bridge processor and GeForce 600 graphics card. After scrutinizing an amply equipped pre series model with Nvidia's 3D vision technology, a series model with standard FullHD display has to prove itself.
Pros: Matte FullHD display with good values, Rather quiet for a gaming laptop, Excellent connectivity, Insensitive surfaces, Fast Solid State Drive, Moderate temperatures, Handy touchpad, Keyboard light, Excellent performance, Blu ray drive, No Throttling, The G75 has no big weaknesses.
Cons: Big and heavy case, No Optimus, a graphics switch for longer battery life
Conclusion: Other than the confusion with using the Webcam, and the laptop's weight being about a pound heavier than other bulky 17-inch laptops, we have no complaints about the Asus G75VW. It serves up a strong mix of the latest components for a great price, and it runs quietly.
Pros: Aggressively priced for the components inside, Cutting-edge parts selection, Impressive performance, Quiet operation
Cons: Hefty, even for a 17-inch laptop, Webcam software setup is confusing
